I've been making this granola for so long, and I figured it might be time for me to share the recipe. This takes around 30 minutes in total to cook, but only about 10 minutes of prep. The end result is a perfect breakfast or a snack on the go. You can use it to top yogurt or eat it like cereal. It's also super easy to personalize and adjust to your liking.
